What do you shoot people with?

The pulsar just seems so... inadequate. I've messed with the thumper and rocklets, and both seem to have limited effective range. I love the lancer but even crouched it's difficult to hit moving infantry at medium range with it. I was using the punisher for a bit, and you had to keep the bursts really small with that. I'm wondering what other folks use as their main outdoor infantry-to-infantry weapon. Stick with the pulsar? Punisher? Suppressor? Looted cyclers and gausses?

lasher / supressor for me lasher is an excellent colse range weapon
most people disregard the supressor because it's a spawn weapon and instantly throw it away, but when you're wearing reinforced armor there is NO COF expansion when standing still, when crouched it's practically a automatic sniper rifle works great with range magnifier

shotgun 90% of the time... with the lag the spread is good enough you always land a hit since I mainly fight indoors.


if i'm not indoors I carry and assault rifle.

and I only carry those two until I can find a gauss/cycler.

Suppressor all day long. Oh, and the plasma grenades, of course. I just took out a TR AI MAX all on my own today in Agile armour with nothing more than my 10 plasma grenades! That was really sweet. He must've been a stupid bastard, though...

I usually play AI or AV MAX, which ever I can buy. Other than that I've tried them all with nothing I really like so far. I did notice the default spawn gun is hella bad ass, straight shooting so I'll try that for a while I think.

This time around I'm going to get the heavy suit with 2 rifle slots and 2 pistol slots to carry 2 weapons. One for indoor (shotgun/rocklet) and one for outside (lasher/lancer) something. I guess. Mostly I'm going for these certs in this order I think.

BR-2 (5)
MAX - Quasar (3)

BR-3 (6)
Deliver/ANT - (3)

BR-5 (8)
Special Assault - (2)

BR-8 (11)
MAX - Comet (3)

BR-12 (14)
Reinforced Suit (3)

That's about as far as I know now. Might do like Wraith or something just to get around faster. Dunno.

I've been using the Pulsar. It's much better now than when they started it. Good thing too. Suppressor isn't bad, but it's recoil is pretty wicked.
